Aug 13th Here's a link to the site for Regent
who are planning to make a film about Steve's
earlier days. From that site:
" When a chart-topping secular Irish band was
targeted by terrorists in 1975, three band
were murdered, and bass guitarist
left for dead, critically wounded.
As British and Irish governments historically
united to condemn
the massacre of The Miami
was fighting for survival.
His young bride Anne, the love of his life,
was his greatest strength then
- and still is to
this day, as he now fights for
peace. Their powerful love
story is set against a
tragic backdrop, the
culmination of a political plot
. Yet it is also a shining example of how Love Is...
all you need."
The working title for the film is "Love Is".

The Tain". It also atakes us to the about to
